I've sat in front of this computer for about ten minutes now, trying to find the energy to type. It's not that I have to write anything at all if I don't want to, but for some reason I need to.
This week, I've had more sleep than usual. Often ten hours a night. I'm used to more like seven (my preferred amount), and now I'm left wondering if I should have less sleep. Maybe then I'd feel better. To be honest, after almost twelve hours of deep sleep last night, I feel like I could crawl in to bed right now and snooze the afternoon away. Instead, I'm drinking coffee. Something I don't often do after midday, usually.
I did, however, manage a substantial bike ride yesterday, and even a forty-five minute workout on the treadmill (with Hubby beside me on his bike trainer as motivation). Maybe I'm tired because I finally got off my arse and did some exercise?! Maybe I'm tired because I have so much flying around in my head, that the thought of tackling it all is making me feel so tired. Maybe my boys have exhausted me during the first week of school holidays? We've done a lot this past week.
So, I have a couple of questions for you today:
What's your ultimate amount of sleep each night? When you're feeling really flat, what do you do to make yourself feel more alive?
